NEPHI'S COURAGE: STORY OF A BAD MORMON
December 8, 2019
Nephi Willard is a practicing Mormon who loves God and his church. He grew up in Happy Valley, the center of LDS life in Utah, and faithfully served a mission.
The perfect Mormon life would be his, if not for the fact that Nephi is gay, putting him at odds with his church leaders. No matter how well Nephi obeys the commandments, he doesn’t seem to fit in at church, and his desire to follow the Mormon rules makes it difficult to fit in with the gay community.
While he tries to reconcile his Mormon side with his gay side, Nephi navigates two worlds in a struggle to understand himself. When a new love interest introduces him to possibilities he never imagined, he must decide whether to embrace his nature or his faith.
"There is a condition worse than blindness, and that is, seeing something that isn't there."
I love to write. I have had stories in my head for a long time and am finally taking the time to get them out on paper. I am excited to share my characters with you and I hope you enjoy getting to know them as much as I have.
